responding to the elizabeth warren/scot brown debate that happened in boston. that was a barn burner. but before that, i have to tell you we had a remarkable late in the game development in the presidential race today. it is october 1st. but what happened today is roughly the opposite of an october surprise, i guess? today the republican party announced that in five of the nine or so swing states in the presidential race this year, in the five states that you see marked with an x on this map, the republican party is stopping its voter registration efforts. the republican party has suddenly and totally as of october 1st given up on trying to register new voters in nevada, colorado, virginia, north carolina, and florida. each of those states is very much in play this year. and the republican party has announced that in these five key swing states, they are going to stop registering new voters. here are the voter registration deadlines for those states. typically what this would mean is between now and the last minute of the last hour on the last date that you see on the screen for each

as massachusetts republican incumbent senator scott brown met his democratic challenger, elizabeth warren, at the university of massachusetts in lowell. it was the second of four scheduled debates as a new poll from "the boston globe" shows 18% of massachusetts voters still undecided and with warren holding a lead. right out of the gate, moderator david gregory asked about the controversy around elizabeth warren's claim to native american heritage. >> i never used the information about our native american heritage to get any advantage, not to apply to college, not to apply to law school, and not to get hired for any job. i was listed in a directory as -- i listed myself as native american. i was listed there. it's part of who i am. >> do you consider yourself a minority? >> i consider myself as having a native american background. that's what i said. that's what i am. >> no one is questioning what her parents told her when she was younger or all the way through that time frame. but when she was asked by "the boston herald" why is harvard touting her as a woman of color, a minority, a woma

was your initial reaction to the elizabeth warren/scott brown debate. >> scott brown fell into the trap that sometimes male politicians fall into when they debate women. he looked overbearing and angry. and you particularly can't do that when you're debating a woman candidate. i thought he was in a lot of trouble as a result of this. he's behind anyway, but now he looks mad, angry, and i think that's a -- >> okay. well, that race is fascinating. the debate was last night and we have fascinating clips of that. and also the look at preparations of the presidential debates a day away. but first, we'll start with afghanistan. nato's secretary general says there's a possibility that western forces could be withdrawn from afghanistan more quickly than previously planned. he suggested the deadly spike of insider attacks has hit the morale of former troops serving in the war zone. and today's front page of the "new york times" claims the u.s. is abandoning its hopes for a peace deal with the taliban. the "times" reports american officials are essentially giving up on what was once a critical co

? >> it would take me too long to go through all the math. >>> in massachusetts tonight, senator scott brown and his democratic challenge elizabeth warren face off in the second of four debates for that u.s. senate seat up there. david gregory will moderate it comes as new boston globe poll shows warren inching slightly ahead, 43% to 38%. still 18% of voters remain undecided there. the same poll conducted in may gave senator brown a two-point lead. >>> still ahead on "way too early," wow were the new york jets bad yesterday. shutout, blownout, injured on their home field. rex ryan's press game post conference the only highlight of the day. >>> and an incredible comeback by team europe at ryder cup. the united states entered sunday with a big lead and it's big guns on the course. we'll show you what happened in sports. all that and a check on weather when "way too early" comes right back. >> there are a few people in the house who would rather we did this some other way. we've tried other ways. i say to my friends in the house of representatives, we've got to get this done. >> we're confident
in the massachusetts senate debate tonight between scott brown and elizabeth warren. let's listen to that. >> who's your model supreme court justice? >> let me see here. that's a great question. i think justice scalia is a very good judge. justice kennedy. the i think they're very qualified people there. >> >> miss warren who would be your model supreme court justice. >> i think it would probably be elena kagan. >> jeff toobin, it seemed elizabeth warren got that right the first time. we saw scott brown move from left to right. >> it looked like he was sort of randomly picking names out of the sky. the justices who had absolutely nothing to do with each other elizabeth warren, her boss on the harvard law faculty was dean elena kagan have a long history together. >> and it seemed like scott brown wasn't ready for that answer. he was a practicing lawyer in massachusetts. to not be actively thinking about the supreme court as a senator is a little surprising to me. >> well, and to say that you're favorite justices are sotomayor and scalia among several hours that he named. there is a huge difference
conservative judge on the bench? but then senator brown hedged with this line. >> i think justice scalia is a very good judge, justice kennedy. just -- justice kennedy is obviously very good, and justice roberts. they're -- justice sotomayer. >> he was asked to name his model and he names half the court. >> well, justice scalia -- >> that's the buft being an independent, dave. >> if had you to pick one f you had to pick one. >> listen, i don't need to pick one. >> oh, he's an independent. interesting. we've been hearing that a lot lately. >> i have a history of working across the aisle. >> i've been an independent voter and thinker. >> the fact i'm working across party lines. >> doing my independent thinking. >> i've got some bad news for the senator. see that "r" next to his name? that means he's a republican. and his record shows it, too. he co-sponsored the blunt amendment which would have let employers deny women contraception coverage. he voted against the health care law. he supports subsidizing oil companies. and he wants to extend the bush tax cuts for wealthy americans. but it s
to that interaction that we swed earlier between mr. brown and miss elizabeth warren? >> na is sort of textbook how not to run against a female candidate. remember when rick lazio when he ran against hillary clinton and the way he was aggressive and sort of came off like a jerk. the difficulty in debating a woman, it came up debating sarah palin, is that there's a way you handle debating a woman on television so you don't want to look like the heavy and you definitely don't want to look like you're condescending to her or talking down to her. i think scott brown did himself a world of harm in the way he came across. >> because scott brown has always been regarded as a likable chap. you might not like his policies but he's had an affect which people have found warm and personalable. >> i think in this debate and the previous debate he's ruined that image for himself. he's been seen as sort of like a bully. he keeps going after her on this native american question, just over and over again. his campaign is almost centered on it. even when they asked him a question, a sort of fluffy question about the
. so senator tavaris and brown in toledo and in youngstown. we sleep out in front of the board of elections. it's kind of a party or festive atmosphere. it's a great deal of fun to highlight the importance of early voting. >> so as has been pointed out, mitt romney needs to take ohio if he wants to get to pennsylvania avenue. in 2008 1.7 million ballots were smimted. that's about 30% of the total numbers. what kind of numbers are you expecting this time around? >> it varies from city to city. in cincinnati where we've done it since 2008, we've had about -- oh, boy. we've had about 80 people sleep out overnight. then the next morning we had probably 200 people come out to vote in the morning. in columbus, it'll be a little bit different as there are about 200 ohio state university students who are going to be sleeping out overnight. toledo there are a lot of union workers. in cuyahoga county, there are going to be a great deal of students and other activists who will be there. in youngstown a lot of workers and union workers will be there. so it's a different mix in each city. b
women. or as brown stein refers to them as waitress moms. through a targeted and sustained appeal to working women on display in obama ads like this one the incumbent has been particularly effective and brown stein's piece he writes democrats say blue collar women have been the principle and most receptive target for their extended ad barrage portraying romney as plutocrat. on airing these on dr. phil and judge judy the strategy seems to be paying off lifting obama's numbers among a group that tilts republicans in swing states that will be a key to victory in november. ask you about this, this late stage i call it a late -- i don't know what i called it a last stage gaps when going into the commercial break, but we've -- this has been something we've seen in the numbers for a while now, romney has a problem among latinos and women and in particular, you know, the latino demographics, 70/20 are terrible numbers. bill clinton got the highest percentage of the hispanic vote in '96, 72%. looks like the president is on track to do that. you see these piecemeal efforts from the romney c
